I think I forgot how to laugh....seriously.

I've been taking life and it's issues so seriously in recent times - make that years - that I can't even remember the last time I actually laughed out loud. Nothing is funny to me anymore. Stopped seeing humor. Argh.

I'm in need of some major humor therapy - but for the life of me I can't find ANYTHING that is even smile-worthy. I used to lol at movies like Young Frankenstein, Dumb and Dumber, Airplane, Hellzapoppin' and now - pfffff. Can't stand watching stand-up either and I know them all. The profanity probably turns me off - where every second word is the F word. That's not funny - never was either.
Charlie Chaplin and the classics never really did anything for me. I guess with time, my tastes have really changed - but I can't believe that I'll be trudging through life without a belly laugh again. Feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders right now - but what would do the trick when I'm so darn sensitive to every little nuance?
Adam Corolla was funny - saw him, Louis CK - to a point, George Carlin - saw everything of his, Robin Williams - was funny way back when. Please help me find a snit-proof comedy movie, site, video, stand-up - whatever - as long as it's profanity free and doesn't involve gratuitous sophomoric sex scenes, people hurting each other, or themselves, animals being harmed or things blowing up. British humor is also out. That would definitely not be funny at this point.
Hopefully there's something still out there that will bring back the laughs to this way too serious chick. Kudos in advance.
